Amy Laurent gives her side of the blow-up with Tina.

on Jul 24, 20120

Just when you think things can’t get any worse, you meet Tina Pray. I mean seriously, can’t I catch a break this week?! The biggest thing I push my clients to do, especially if they get dumped or rejected, is to get right back up on that horse and NOT to dwell on the past. As a matchmaker, I know there is someone for everyone. Everyone has a match, everyone has a true love, and it’s my job to find it for my clients -- even if they begin to doubt themselves.



But now that for the first time in a very long time it’s my own feelings and my own heart that feels twisted in knots and beat up, and I’m realizing how much it really does sting to be rejected. It makes me want to be there for my clients even more whenever they need me. As for me, the I-just-got-dumped-depression has set in over the past few days. This time it’s me, not a client, who needs a good “Amy pep talk.”

Step back - either walk the walk or know that people are going to say she is not what she says she is.

If you were my matchmaker and I saw you on this show doing what you are doing I would ask for a refund.  

You need to take your own medicine.

That woman was horrible. She only made herself look bad. If you don't want the matchmaker's advice, don't go to the matchmaker.

At first I thought Tina was just control freak crazy. But she was so over-the-top, that I finally decided she was acting out for the cameras, ala Jerry Springer.  Sheesh.  Fail!  lol

Glad you got it. Next time please don't let lust overwhelm you to break your rules as you did with Lewis. Huge mistake causing you pain and a waste of precious time you could have been out on "good" dates like you described with Scott. You were not strong enough though to having Tina removed immediately and shutting her down by not talking about the subjects she wanted to talk/shout about. You should have embarrassed her by saying you were restraining yourself from calling the pice and pressing charges for assault since she grabbed you and accosted you and suggest that she leave immediately before you change your mind.

That Tina brute was a weirdo. She knocked your drink out of your hand as she grabbed at you, then blamed you. (Ooooh, Armani!)

Yay Amy! Your sweet date with Scott was really nice to watch. You let your guard down and showed your gentle, vulnerable side. More of that, please!

I think Tina wanted YOU.  It would have been a waste of time to fix her up with men.
